The Wisconsin Badger Chapter of SWANA hosted an evening in the Great Dane Duck Blind at Warner Park on Thursday, May 29th. SWANA members, as well as staff and guests of the American Society of Civil Engineers, Cornerstone, SCS Engineers, Ayres Associates, CLEAResult, Dane County Department of Public Works Solid Waste Division, and TRC Environmental met up to watch the Madison Mallards battle the La Crosse Loggers.
The Loggers broke away with the initial lead, but the Mallards battled back to victory winning 7 to 5. Possibly more exciting than the baseball were the on-field competitions and ribbon dancing routines that took place between innings. As well choreographed as the dancing competitions were, the Duck Blind crowd may have only found it all so amusing because admission to the game included all-you-can drink tap beer.
The game was a great chance for Madison area solid waste and engineering professionals to get to know one another further on both a professional and personal level. Keep your eye out for the next SWANA event!
